Emotionally Traumatic Research Seminar Series: Learning from multiple points of view and experiences: Seminar 1.
Speaker 1: Prof. Marie Breen-Smyth. Prof Emerita, University of Surrey.

Speaker 2: Síofra Peeren & Ariana Markowitz. PhD students, King’s College London & University College London.

This seminar series has sprung from a gap in knowledge and training identified by PhD students and early career researchers in NUI Galway. It seeks to build on learning achieved in a reading group in late 2020 by hearing from a range of speakers with experiences related to emotionally-traumatic research.

The speakers are from both academic and non-academic backgrounds and, importantly, represent different perspectives, that is, experienced and novice researchers, a research ‘gatekeeper’, a student counsellor and professional transcribers. The academic presenters will draw on experiences in different areas of trauma, for example war, displacement, adverse childhood events, criminalisation and incarceration, and racial injustice.

Anyone who is interested in learning about emotionally-traumatic research may attend.
